Loic Tallon, Chief Digital Officer of the Metropolitan Museum of Art (the largest art museum in the United States), about the success of #OpenAccess & collaboration with #Wikimedia:

Nice in-depth article on latest developments in clean (lab-grown) meat production. Excited to see this happening within my lifetime. Not for everyone but reducing the environmental impact of meat production alone would be a huge benefit., mostly a browser extension, now also has a command line downloader for your contributions to proprietary sites, using #puppeteer. It's still a bit experimental, but you can check it out here:
